That "K" at the end refers to the width of a 16:9 frame.

16 monitors at 4,000 pixels each.
16 x 4,000 pixels = 64,000 pixels.

Just... no. "4K" refers to how many pixels are in ONE DIMENSION of the screen. a "4k" screen is 3840 pixels width × 2160 pixels in height, meaning 8.29 MILLION pixels per monitor.

16 x 8,294,400 = 132,710,400 total pixels.

I'm pretty sure you're just a troll, either way the truth is obvious.

Thats correct but a 4K Monitor havent 4K pixels watch the other comment there you see it how many pixels they Reallöhne have

Each screen is defined as 4k.
And there are 16 screen.

1080p screen is 1k and it take 4 x 1080p screen to make 4k.

4k is not 4000p though, it's 2160p. Similarly, 1080p is not 1k, it would be almost 2k. 4k refers to the horizontal pixel count, 1080p to the vertical one.

4k is exactly double the resolution of a 1080p, thus making it 4 1080p monitors, once you square it, since when you multiply the dimensions by x, the area is multiplied by x^2. Similarly, 8k is 2x4k in dimensions, or 4 4k monitors in a grid. 16k, once again, doubles 8k's dimensions, thus it is 4 8k monitors in a grid, or 4x4 4k monitors, or 16 4k monitors.

dont be a fool.
1920x1080 is known as 1k display.
and you need 4x (1920x1080) displays to make a 4k display.

this is how some TV company was building their early 4k TV. they had 4 x 1920x1080 panels in one panel and called it 4k TV

I invoke Poe's law here. If you're trolling congrats, you got me. If not, you're plain wrong. Check the numbers, they work themselves out.

You know the resolution of a 4k monitor, right? Divide both dimensions by 2, not by 4, and what do you get? A 1080p monitor. Yet you need 4 1080p monitors to "make" one 4k monitor, not 2. It's either magic, or you got the math wrong, and when you multiply the dimensions of a rectangle by a factor, the area is multiplied by the square of said factor. It's simple math, really, and it works from 1080p to 4k to 8k to 16k without problems.

1920 x 1080 = 2073600
3840 x 2160 = 8294400 = "4k"
2073600 x 4 = 8294400

1920 x2 = 3840
1080 x2 = 2160

Also, 16k = 15360 x 8640 = 132710400 = 8294400 x 16 = 4k x 16

So yeah, your point? Linus' setup is 16k, not 64k, your math is wrong.

OMG ... its a square of 16 monitors and each side of this square has 4 monitors ... 1K for one monitor ... you get 4K ... so if you do 4K x 4K surprise you get 16K

Wrong, its 4k for each monitors.

but the pixels of each side is about 8K and we have 2 sides so 8x2=16 still 16K

+BlackCaktus
with that logic, then 3840 x 2160 is not 4k because it sides are 2k
since you saying that 2160x4 = 8640 = 8k.
with that logic.
3840 x 2160 is not a 4k, its a 2k, since its sides are 2160 aka 2k.
